      Hello you all.

      I have extreme pain hyperacusis, and reactive tinnitus.

      Maybe the culprit of both were antibiotics, i guess I'll never know, but since the onset literally any med I try at all spikes my tinnitus, including benzos... Also Carbamazepine gave me a hyperacusis setback.

      Does anyone have any idea why it happens?

      Also, has anyone tried LDN for the hyperacusis pain?

      I haven't tried it. But where did you find that LDN might be helpful for pain hyperacusis? I have only read that anti-seizure drugs might be helpful. But they come with heavy side effects. So probably not many have tried it. @DebInAustralia said two here had success with Keppra.

      If your hyperacusis is an autoimmune issue, LDN could help, as it is an immune modulator at low doses (0.5mg - 4mg)

      LDN is used for pain states.

      IMO, it couldn't hurt to try it.

      Dr. Dirk de Ridder recommends LDN for tinnitus.

      However, I know of one guy on here, who tried it, but didn't benefit from it.

      I know of 2 members who found Keppra helpful for hyperacusis.

      I have tried both LDN and Keppra for pain hyperacusis. In my case they did not help.

      Clonazepam helps me a good bit. For all the usual reasons discussed on Tinnitus Talk regarding benzos I limit it to the bare minimum.
